Hello evryone, best wishes for new year.
Strange, some WU runs in a few seconds,
But some runs about 30 minuts, then start again from null ! with remaining of some hours !
And those WU, starts again and again !!!
The worst is that such WU (running hours) are considered/reported as working time in a few seconds !
What is the problem ?
My side ?
Best regards

Hello! :)

Most of tasks are short and runs ~ 10 .. 20 seconds. But some tasks (about 1/10 .. 1/20 part of entire set) - long and must runs 1, 2, 3, may be more hours (depending of computer). During computation of this tasks BOINC periodically performs update of estimation run time and percent of completion. And tasks does not have checkpoints.

Thank you for participation!

Hello Hoarfrost,
I know you do your best. Already many years.
We know each other also many years.
But the strange running time is very special.
Some WU runs 1 or 2 hours, Then restart again and again.
With the latest running in some second. With result that credits are very low.
When a WU is estimated remaining is above the 3 hour, I cancel.
Some WU have a remaining above the five hours !!!
The problems is that the stderr.txt, stay empty !
What I do ????????????
Best regards

Hello Hoarfrost, again a strange WU :
I write on apr01 17:40UTC
It run in one minut till 99% then restart again from null. Now 4 hours remaining, and time uncreasing. After waiting one hour , it show now six hours !!!
My hosts runs 24/7/365.
It is the same on my two hosts. Some runs normal, some fully unexpected,

About this WU,
Here the stderr.txt :
19:04:44 (7452): wrapper (7.9.26016): starting
19:04:44 (7452): wrapper: running rake_odls12_windows_intelx86_64.exe ()
Error: startup_info.hStdInput is invalid

Fraction done.txt:
3.72238358715549E-0001

All those report are from 17:04 UTC (the hour you read are in my local time !)

Best regards.

Hello!

Estimation of runtime can varies in wide range. Only real run time have a sense. Usually between seconds and 30 .. 60 minutes for Ryzen. If you see a very long tasks you can list it to me in private project mail.

Thank you for attention! :)

This task became stuck on 73.33%.
It stayed stuck at that point at least 16 hours. I've aborted it after giving it a try to complete.

Thank you, V0d01ey! It looks like some kind of rare problem. The other two results were calculated correctly.
